They say clothing can make the character, and I thoroughly enjoyed making characters out of clothing! For Guild Wars 2, I designed the clothing culture direction for four of the races (norn, human, charr, asura) and the character art direction for the fifth, the Sylvari (please check out the sylvari post in the gallery!). I thought folks might find it interesting to read what exploring a design process like that can cover, so I wanted to put together this 'fireside chat' of my design work on the norn. It's a look at how designing separate races can affect each other.
The norn are one of the five playable races for the MMO Guild Wars 2, created for ArenaNet. https://www.guildwars2.com | www.arena.net (The game is free to play now, go check it out!)
